Putting a strong resistance to COVID-19, Himachal Pradesh became the first state in India to fully vaccinate its entire population against the Coronavirus.
As many as 53,86,393 eligible adults received the second dose under the Central government’s COVID-19 vaccination drive.
It is to be noted that Himachal Pradesh was also the first state to achieve the 100% first dose vaccination of the adult population by the end of August.
“Leading the way forward! Congratulations Himachal Pradesh, for fully vaccinating the entire eligible population overcoming many challenges!” read a tweet by My Gov India, which is a citizen interaction platform of the Government of India.
